Calculators Running Programs on ti-89 titanium

    I am using a ti-89 titanium for maths this year(my first graphics calculator) and in class we covered some basic programming for ti-84(the minimum calculator for this year). I made some basic formulae programs but now i can't find how to run them. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    When I download programs, that I need to run later on, I simply do 2nd then hit the minus key to access var-link. From here I see all the programs, text files and so on that my 89 has. Programs usually have PRGM extension and text files have FLIO extension as seen from the var-link window. The 89 does not complete the syntax for running the program in your HOME screen. You usually have to close the parenthesis for the program to work.

    Hope it helps.

    I have found the varlink screen and it is showing the programs that i made and they have a prgm extension, however it will not let me acess these in any way. How do i close the "parenthesis"? I am only doing grade 9 maths this year and i am completly new to programming and graphics calcuators.

    When you find the desired program, just highlight it using the arrow keys and hit enter. This will then take you to your Home screen where you see the name of your program in the format like so:
    directory_name/program_name(

    You must close the parenthesis or you will get a syntax error.
    directory_name/program_name()

    when i go into var-link i can see the two prorgams i have written but i hit enter and it takes me to my apps screen however there is no program name or any directory or the like. Should i be pressing enter when the program is highlighted? Would it be something to do with faulty programming?

    Thats how you would usually do it. Highlight the program and hit enter. This should then take you to your Home screen and not your apps screen. As far as programming does, I'm not sure if the 84 programming you learned will work. I dont really do programming on the TI calcs. But even if your program does have an error, usually the program editor will open up and take you to the error whenever you try to execute a buggy program.

    Hi, had a quick question: are TI 89 Basic edition programs supported by the ti 89 titanium edition? I believe this may be a stupid question, but an answer would be highly valued. Thank you very much in advance.
